Q:Could I mix this with coconut oil to make a paste for easier application?Asked on 7/22/2015 by Nichole from S. Ga.
A:T'eo was designed as a solid bar to be used as is. This being said, we understand that you know what works best for you. We can't guarantee how it will turn out, but you're more than welcome to use it as you'd like and try making a paste!Answered on 7/25/2015 by Myriam from Lush Direct
A:I wouldn’t do that…clogged skin pores might be a result.Answered on 7/23/2015 by Anonymous

A:It stings for a sec but no rash for me
Now this is living!

Plz advice lush teamAsked on 5/29/2015 by Maioona from Kuwait
A:You can definitely feel free to use T'eo as a powder rather than a bar!Answered on 6/1/2015 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:I found the same problem…which is why I stopped using it. I use Guv’nor instead. There are no harmful ingredients…and while it doesn’t smell as good it works perfectly well. It is also non-irritating.
WalterAnswered on 5/29/2015 by Anonymous
A:Yes, I actually always make my bar into a powder to apply it…a small amount at a time.

A:I use it as a powder because it's a bit rough on my skin otherwise as well
and seems to work just as fine!Answered on 5/29/2015 by Anonymous
Q:how long does it last?Asked on 5/9/2015 by cio from arizona
A:Everyone's personal chemistry is different, so this varies from person to person, their daily activities and how much they use daily.Answered on 5/15/2015 by Lana from Lush Direct
Q:I bought T'eo not too long ago and have really enjoyed it. It gets the job done while leaving me smelling nice and fresh. I do have a quick question, though. I noticed that as I've been using it, it's starting to look a little yellowish instead of just a nice, stark white. Is that normal?Asked on 5/4/2015 by Katie from Long Island, New York
A:That is likely it mixing with your body's chemistry. You can likely just use it as is or if you like scrape off the top layer.Answered on 5/15/2015 by Lana from Lush Direct
A:Scrape that off.. And continue using it. It's normal to have to scrape between uses. It also helps make it smoother and apply Better, I love mine but if I shave it gets irritated real quick so scraping that top layer makes my arm pits so much happier!
•Ariel Ketchner HarknessAnswered on 5/5/2015 by Ariel from Arizona
Q:So, I've had this product for a couple months now and I love it, it's a fantastic deodorant, but I took it on a trip with me a while ago and it crumbled into a million pieces so I'm having to store it in an old Ocean Salt pot and I'm applying it with a makeup brush. Is there any way for me to lump it back into a bar again or should I just keep using it this way?Asked on 4/28/2015 by Maddie from Richmond, VA
A:Unfortunately, there isn't a way to lump it back together. Although, I find that it's much easier to apply T'eo onto your armpits when it's in this form. So yes you can definitely keep using it the same way!Answered on 4/29/2015 by Pauline
A:I just use a round cosmetic pad to apply--less messy than a brush. Don't worry about putting it back together. PS. Place in a zip lock Baggie. Takes less room and is easier to pack.

Q:If I get pregnant,can I ues this product?Asked on 3/8/2015 by queeny from Hebei,CHINA
A:I think the best thing to do is to print out the ingredient list of the product and consult with your doctor :)Answered on 3/21/2015 by Kels from LUSH Direct
A:I would definitely think this is a great option when you're pregnant! Much better than the ones in the grocery store that are filled with aluminum. But if you're unsure I would talk to your doctor.

Q:Since people like to take deodorant to the gym does this product have a tin that fits it or would it hold up on its own?Asked on 2/22/2015 by Sophia
A:T'eo should fit in to one our Body Butter Tins. This is very handy when going to the gym, or whatever your doing. Just remember to keep the lid tight and not to let it bounce around to much.Answered on 3/21/2015 by Alexander from LUSH Direct
A:It holds up only when dry. It can get crumbly when it is exposed to high humidity or moisture. You might try keeping it in a dry bag or sock.

Q:Does this leave residue on your clothes once its applied?Asked on 2/4/2015 by Darcie from Auburn Hills, MI
A:Because T'eo is powder deodorant, it will not leave the same kind of residue that a regular deodorant would. There might be a little bit of powder on your clothes, but not the same kind of creamy residue you might get from regular deodorants.Answered on 2/13/2015 by Meg from LUSH Direct
A:Not that I remember but I still don't recommend it because it broke all part after a few uses. The powders they make are much better!

Q:Is this deo aluminum free?Asked on 1/7/2015 by freezebug
A:T'eo is indeed aluminum free!Answered on 2/13/2015 by Meg from LUSH Direct
A:Yes, I pretty sure all of their deodorants are! However, I wouldn't recommend Teo because it breaks apart really quickly. I think the powder ones are better!

Q:Is this an antiperspirant deodorant? And how do I keep it fresh? To me it just looks like a bar of soap that would get moldy sitting in the air.Asked on 9/22/2014 by RY to the RY from The North Pole
A:It's not an antiperspirant, but if you pair it with one of our dusting powders it will suck up all the excess moisture!Answered on 9/25/2014 by Anonymous
A:It works best as a deodorant! The bar is actually comprised of pressed powder so it will not dry out, but we still recommend you keep it in a container as it can get a bit crumbly.Answered on 9/25/2014 by Kayla from LUSH DIRECT
A:It's a deodorant. I can get really stinky and moist at times. This stuff
smells pretty good and totally stops the stink. The only thing is that it
can be a little messy when it starts crumbling. I far prefer it to any of
the drug store deodorants I have used in the past and it's far better than
the straight up baking soda that I used for a time.
I hope this helps.

A:It's not an antiperspirant. It is antibacterial because tea tree oil is. It's like a pressed powder, has the consistency of a bath bimb. Doesn't get moldy, it's not wet. I keep mine in an empty container from lush of one of the jelly soaps, it's perfect and it lasts a really long time. I'm not sure it needs to be stored in anything because its dry, but it seems like a good idea and I think it lasts longer. You could set it on a small dish, like a soap dish. It's not wet though.

Q:If you don't use the blue side, what is it there for?Asked on 2/21/2014 by gpuck from Fort Worth, Tx
A:The wax is included at the bottom half of the bar to give you something to hold on to while applying the product, in addition to aiding the bar in keeping its shape. It makes the application much more user friendly!Answered on 3/26/2014 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:It's wax to have something to hold on to so it doesn't get on your hand, and it also does not produce as much waste as a traditional plastic container.Answered on 3/12/2014 by Anonymous
A:It's there to help keep the shape if the product and to give you something to hild onto while applying it.Answered on 2/21/2014 by Anonymous
Q:Does it smell citrusy?Asked on 12/29/2013 by Chelsey Lace from Thousand Oaks, CA
A:Yes, this does have a strong citrusy scent due to the Lemon and Lemongrass oils.Answered on 2/26/2014 by Kendra M from LUSH Direct
A:It is citrusy but not like an orange. It is kind of hard to describe but
it smells wonderful!Answered on 1/11/2014 by Anonymous
A:Yes, te'o has a lovely citrus smell.Answered on 1/2/2014 by Anonymous
A:Yeah it kind does. But it lasts a long time and works very well. :)

Q:Maybe a dumb question, but are the ingredients in T'eo organic?Asked on 4/21/2013 by Anna from Texas
A:We use organic ingredients as much as possible, and this is listed in the ingredients whenever it's the case! For transparency, we refer to an ingredient as organic only if it is 100% organic, so we under-report our use of organic ingredients in our listings quite a bit!Answered on 9/24/2013 by Brandy from LUSH
Q:How should one store this item? Does it fit in the massage bar tin? Any ideas for travel besides a plastic baggy?
-AmandaAsked on 8/24/2012 by Amanda from Chicago, IL
A:It does fit whole in the tins, however to store and use I crumble mine up into a powder and store in the tin. It makes applying much easier and less messy. Put some powder in your hand and rub under your arm - no mess. And it travels well while in the tin.Answered on 6/20/2013 by Randy N from Chicago, IL
A:T'eo does indeed fit in the massage bar tin (with extra space) as well as the body butter tin. Generally, I find the tins a good way to transport the deodorants for travel.Answered on 8/28/2012 by Megan from LUSH Direct
Q:how do you store this product? does it fit in any of the other lush tins?Asked on 5/24/2012 by Gretch from Boston, Ma
A:It doesn't really fit in the tins. I keep it in the bag from the store, and outside of the bathroom so that it doesn't absorb moisture from the shower.Answered on 5/30/2012 by Tara from Winter Haven, FL
A:Unfortunately, T'eo does not fit into any of the LUSH tins until it has been used a couple of times and worked down a little bit. As long as it is stored in a cool, dry place away from any moisture the bar should be fine.Answered on 9/5/2012 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
